Attention Vendors!  After the original HMGS Historicon Vendor Packages were distributed at Cold Wars 2012, we have learned the Fredericksburg Expo Center WILL, in fact, accept drayage/freight shipments.  We have modified the package to include the forms necessary for shipping goods to the Expo Center.  To download a copy of the modified package, click on the New Vendor Information Package.
